December Meeting: Thursday, Dec 16

No wild and crazy topics, maybe a view to what should be done in the new year? Things to cover, training? vendor visits? Special topics and presentations? Come one, come all… step right up and suggest some new and exciting things for the local system administrators. If you don’t play, you can never win. Anyone can contribute their $0.02. That’s right, Big Top System Administration. Only a few virtual front row seats available.

Power bumps, hacking attacks, and Bell woes

May you live in interesting times is certainly the thing for this week. Bell cut off my provider last week for a day and a half, today there is a network flood that causes my DSL modem to lock up, and I walked on the power bar where I had plugged in while I was moving the server into a rack. I’m surprised anything survived. At least this constituted some activity on the site.

Registration closing

We have to have the exams shipped in from Toronto, so anyone who has not signed up by Monday night may not have an exam to write on. I will send a confirmation email to everyone who is scheduled to write.

November Meeting, Thursday Nov 20, 2004

Meeting this Thursday, Nov 20, 2004. See calendar for details. Last meeting had some relatively lively discussion, hopefully we can keep the trend going. Given that we will be punting the LPI exams out, this could help map out training (if people want it), and we could discuss GNU cfengine.
